    Default OT Anyone use corrosionX?

    I was at the local bearing supply and was talking with them about random stuff and found out they sell corrosionX and really like it. I read up on the website and it sounds to good to be true. Has anyone used it in a real world application?
    CorrosionX

    I use Corrosion X and like it better than anything else I've tried.

    Thanks, do you use the one in the red can?
    What do you use it for, lubrication or rust protection, or?

    CorrosionX
    I used it for about ten years when I owned an airplane, and really liked it.

    I use it and like it. It seems to do what I ask of it on things like electrical connectors on trucks, motorcycles and trailers. It can be a little messy, but that’s why they make shop rags and paper towels.

    Rust protection and on electrical connections.
    Lubrication of bicycle chain. Applied at the start of last winter and after riding for months in the rain and snow there was no rust visible on the chain.
    Red can.

    And for day-to-day in the shop CRC 3-36 is my go to after trying Corrosion-X, BoeShield, and a few others. Not messy and provides excellent protection.

    I'm a retired substation electrician for the local utility, and we used corrosionX on power circuit breakers. I used both the red can which is more of a bearing/bushing lube and the heavy duty variety which was a lot thicker and works great for rust prevention. It really has good staying qualities even on the outside equipment.

    Yes. Waxy. If you need more of a product that penetrates and protects, try ACF-50.

    What particular parts of the breakers ?

    the contacts themselves ?

    the linkage ?
    The tower insulators ?

    The contact fingers ?
